    Icon is an extremely talented and creative engineer. He has this amazing ability to transform a dry song into a radio hit. I cannot wait to work with him again, this was incredible.

    I highly recommend having Icon mix your stuff especially if you’re working in rap or rnb music. He knows how to make tracks bang plus he brought some dope ideas to the table that I wouldn’t have thought of. Also he’s very professional, easy to work with and has a quick turnaround time.

    I've been doing a lot of research lately, on the science of vocal engineering. Mixing and Mastering, if you will, and I slipped upon icondaengineer.com, ran by "Da-Icon". Da-Icon has his craft down to a science, no pun intended, and I recommend him to any artist looking for engineering. Everything is so crisp, its as if he's a musical genius.

    On a scale of 1-10 this guy is definetely a top-tier 11. Worth the price. A true lover of music, very passionate about his work. I shop with the young man on a pretty consistant basis, and you should too.

Which artist would you like to work with and why?
I would love to work with Drake Kendrick Lemar Katy Perry & K.west. Simply because they are the G.O.A.T.
Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
I can't say right now due to confidentiality. I will definitely say when the time is right.
What are you working on at the moment?
A ton of records.
Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
Yoad Nevo & Manny Marroquin
Analog or digital and why?
Both
What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
Them = What is a 2-track mix and a Trackout mix? Me = A 2-Track is a song that has wav or mp3 of the instrumental + Vocals that need mixing A full track-out is a session that requires the Instrumental + Vocals.
What questions do you ask prospective clients?
Whats your vision & listen for every detail.
What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
I have been into music since the tender age of 10 started to do song writing then later got involved in the production side. Last I started learning the art of mixing & mastering due to the need of an extra engineer at the studio I was working at as a producer (Age 18).
How would you describe your style?
A very bold upfront sound.
What's your typical work process?
I love sitting with the music for the 1st listen and writing down my notes. I never want to get used to the mix or marry the demo version. I then ask the client what the vision is for their project or single. I feel these 2 things make the work very efficient.
What's your 'promise' to your clients?
I always get the job done !
What do you like most about your job?
Being apart of making a artist or band's vision come to life.
What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
The biggest misconception about what i do is there is a magic button instead of years of experience in understanding audio.
What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
Know what you want or feel free to ask questions to get what you want.
What's your strongest skill?
I would say being able to translate what a client need into the mix.

If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
My Ears | SSL Channel Strip By Waves | TUBE-TECH CL1B | Little Labs VOG (Voice Of God) | Vintage LA2A |
What type of music do you usually work on?
I would say a lot of Hip Hop Pop and Rnb.
What do you bring to a song?
Detail and the full vision of the song.
Can you share one music production tip?
Never worry about having everything loud before the mastering stage.
